The Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria in Buenos Aires will revitalise Jardín Botánico Arturo E Ragonese by developing its facilities and infrastructure in order to make best use of its significant potential role in threatened plant conservation, education and research.
Situated in a very diverse but understudied region of Argentina, the University of Entre Ríos in Paraná will establish Jardín Botánico Oro Verde as a teaching and research resource for the university and local schools, providing a model for university botanic gardens in Argentina.
Jardín Botánico Dr Miguel J Culaciati in the Sierras of Córdoba will be developing its capacity to deliver a holistic environmental education programme in the garden and surrounding schools, and develop an education resource pack for botanic gardens in Argentina.

In the world's first ever 'Botanic Garden Day', thirty-five gardens across Argentina held special events and activities for schools, families and thousands of visitors to explore and discover their local botanic garden.
The network of botanic gardens in Argentina are currently working together to develop an action plan to co-ordinate their work in the research, education and conservation of Argentina's rich natural heritage.
One of the key targets of the Investing in Nature Programme in Argentina is the training of over 60 staff belonging to Argentine gardens in botanic garden management, environmental education and plant conservation.
